I am presuming that he at least is a good healer. He should stick to what he knows
on December 28, 2014
An amusing and instructive read, particularly reading it after 2012. Amusing by how totally and completely wrong he is about everything, and instructive because my annoyance at reading his colossal errors is making me think hard about what is actually true. He did have a few things (a very few things) correct. For example he does seem to have a passing familiarity with shamanism. But traditional shamanism provided a valuable service to tribal communities. Shamans were judged by how well they could heal and how well they could predict the future. I am presuming that he at least is a good healer. He should stick to what he knows.
This book is very heavy on proselytizing Buddhism, which is fine. But I think he should say that upfront, rather than going on and on about how his religion is totally right and encompasses all religions, that it doesn't matter if you are Christian or Jewish or whatever, as long as you are Buddhist. Those interested in converting to Buddhism would do well to read the sutras.
He does seem to have the sight, but anybody with it knows, or should know, that 90% of what is seen is not veridical. There is no discernment, either in his own statements or in accepting the most farfetched ideas from others. Some of this is harmless, like blindly repeating the assertions of Zecharia Sichin or that polyester would have some kind of Rapture. But some of his assertions are quite harmful, like saying that global warming has nothing to do with human activity. He even repeats hateful conspiracy theories about AIDS, Ebola, and vaccinations, which could cause immediate harm. At least when he repeats them he immediately distances himself from them. He has a strange relationship with science. He rejects almost everything that science says is true, yet when it comes to the photon band or schizophrenia he quotes select scientific studies that agree with his point of view.
I picked this book up hoping to have instruction in how to deal with the changing quality of time since October 2011. Perhaps I need to find a book written after 2012. It's alienating that most people seem to not have noticed any change. I guess there are so few of us that such a book would have a tiny audience and therefore isn't being published. He does have some interesting things to say about multiple dimensions and how they relate to the chakras but if you are going to have a dimension of sound, wouldn't it correspond to the fifth chakra?
Anyhow the book did get me thinking so I gave it three stars. And it's a cautionary tale in being careful with one's intuition about the future. Yes, here in the future it will be important to put petroleum products back in the ground (or to not remove them in the first place), and it sounds like he sensed that with his sight, or someone else did. But then to jump from that to the idea that polyester clothes will on one specific day all disappear off everyone's bodies, that is pretty silly.
